Being in the moment (video)

I talked with Nisandeh about being in the moment.. and adopted the lessons in my daily life. To me, being in the moment has been one of the most life changing experiences of the past year. It’s so small and simple, but it brings so much joy and peace.

Enjoy it!

    The two videos are just inspiring! The importance of being able to be in the moment is generally also by me underestimated. In history, several names have been given to this ‘state’. I remember the Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. I’ll be more aware now of just being in the moment. Thanks!

    Thank you Nisendeh and Gerda,

    it is indeed of much importance that we as adult learn to mirror the understanding of being in the moment as we did when we were children. As that is why in our eyes it takes for ever getting the morning routine done getting dressed and moving along to school. In the eyes of our children..we are the once being impatience ;-D.
    Got two kids myself in the age 5 and 7 so I am in the middle of happiness and fun :-D.

    In regards of this topic I want to add my gift and share it with you. It is about the unnoticed fact that learning to be in the moment start with recognizing your own breathing pattern. Its about the adapted way of breathing of the 99% people I meet. (professional in wellness, trainers, speakers, teachers, young or old, healthy or dealing with health imperfections etc. etc.) They all inhale with their mount and exhale thru their mouth. Yet the way of breathing pattern is only beneficial is active situations as for instance running or other sports. But not in our common daily life.

    Adapting in this breathing pattern in daily life, no one is aware of, using your mouth for inhaling generate Shallow breathing patterns and lets you get stuck in having to much carbon dioxide in your system that lets your nerve system generate adrenaline and cortisol (the stress hormones). This Shallow breathing pattern lets you distract from being true in the moment. My strong knowing why people are not aware is because when we meet each other we mirror behavior by nature. A mirror does not think, it only reflects.

    A simple change is to become aware of using you nose for inhaling and connect with your belly movement and exhale longer by mouth then you are inhaling by nose. You will notice that you body and nervous system will calm down instantly. As a gift your body starts to produce dopamine and xerotin (the happy hormones) .

    I am sharing this simple exercise with you. And exercise I train my students and clients with, with or with out the use of the didgeridoo. Give it a try that the moment you are feeling stuck and irritated …

    – stand still and exhale out as long as you can by mouth pulling your bellybutton inward as far as you can.
    – at the end hold your position for 2 sec.
    – then inhale gently by nose pushing gently your bellybutton forward – not extend to much just as it feel comfortable.
    – at the end hold your position for 2 sec.
    – repeat this sequence for a min of 3x or even 7x.

    Enjoy life and share it with as many people you possibly can.

    Loved both videos. After 27 times, you are one big radiating smile. And Nisandeh is so ‘in the moment’… great to see his calmness.
    It’s one of my biggest challenges at the mkment.. stay in the moment and enjoy.
    Thanks Gerdy, good start of my day!

    Thanks for these inspiring words. I will give it a shot as well. As a parent of 3, I know the “morning frustrations”. Time to change the attitude!
